First, we all must be committed to making Baton Rouge a better place for all her citizens. We can not blame any one person for the violence. It belongs to all of us. Someone once said, “for evil to exist, good people remain silent.”
Secondly, we must share our stories with our youth. We all made mistakes, but we did not settle our issues with gun violence. We were taught the value of humanity and life. Dr. Martin Luther King called it personalism: the value of the human personality. We must teach value and love toward each other. Our faith must extend to help others handle life’s existential problems and circumstances.
